It was only a matter of time before the crew from Top Chef and the squad from Southern Charm crossed paths down in Charleston, where Top Chef is currently filming Season 14. Our dreams came true when Padma Lakshmi was seen with Shep Rose at local hotspot The Commodore this week. Despite the big smile on Shep's face, he had one regret about the sesh: the word he used to describe it. "Lots of synergy going on," he wrote on Instagram."I hate that word."
Now that Shep and Padma have hung out, we're still holding out hope that Vanderpump Rules SURver Jax Taylor will be able to connect with Shep in the near future. We have no doubt the photos from their night of, um, synergy will be unforgettable.
